Here’s a blog about booted newswomen who didn’t give up on their careers.

 Where they thrive and succeeding? 

Where they’re mentoring other young women and girls to find the courage and strength to do 

what is right for them and not accepting any less than success and happiness? Where we, as bootless or booted women, 

can share our experiences with one another — good, bad, somewhere in between — so we can all figure out what it takes to be great? 

And maybe even change the world.

And by all means feel free to chime in, comment, and share your thoughts! It’s a community. 

Let us know what you’re working on and where you’re going with it! 

Share a moment from your career. 

Share a moment from your life! And anything goes — including the occasional rant from one of us bootless or booted women.

This blog is all about helping young women and girls not accept less

 than success, happiness, fulfillment of dreams and ambitions, doing what is right for them. 

It’s about not accepting any less than success and happiness.

 awakening our fire, reaching our fullest potential, discovering who we are, discovering who we want to be, and discovering what is best for us. 

  about taking the world by storm. We need to show young women and girls everywhere the way so they can follow in our footsteps if they so desire!

I’m a career and life coach and author and 

speaker specializing in helping both young women and girls as well as women and girls in various industries — creative, medical, entrepreneurial, etc. —

 who want to fulfill their potential and dreams.

 I write about my personal experiences as a young woman who was pushed into entering fields that

  didn’t set out to study or career-track into as a young woman (dental hygiene) even though

 Istrongly preferred to pursue my creative passions (writing/performing arts). This led me down the path of exploring other career options. 

I discovered as a young woman that I had the ability to choose my own path as a career-changer, 

now as a mentor for others to do the same. 

I have been speaking, writing, and coaching for 15 years, have been featured in many magazines and newspapers, 

 have appeared on radio shows or television.

I’m a 20 year veteran of the advertising industry, including working for several national ad agencies. 

I began writing at 14 years-old. I was also vice president of my senior high school’s fashion show society. 

By the age of 18, I had written my first book, which was published in 2001 under the title “Marry Young to Have Kids Young” to help young women understand 

what they were really arriving at when they got married before graduating from college or starting careers, or before having children. 

That book started me on the path that has lead me into helping young women choose what is best for them in their lives.

 When I was 21, I decided to pursue a career in the fashion industry.

 I ended up working as a manager for several major fashion companies’ retail divisions, including Abercrombie & Fitch, booted newswomen

The Limited, Limited Too, American Eagle Outfitters. At 24 years-old, I got serious about

 my career goal of becoming an author/publisher and started submitting my books for publication to publishers.

 I was approached by HarperCollins to publish my book, “Lessons in Life” which chronicled the lessons my mother taught me during my childhood.

 I took a break from publishing to work at Abercrombie & Fitch for a year. During this time, I had an idea for a book called “Marry Young and Live Happily Ever After,” 

which was basically a ‘how to’ guide for teenagers on how to plan their lives and make choices that would lead them into happy marriages from their teen years on.
